Teen Fatal Attraction
13 May 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The Smallville High School is visiting Luthor Corp., and Clark Kent is left behind with the science geek Alicia Baker (Sarah Carter) to get the next elevator. While in the lift with her, the cable breaks and Clark uses his heat vision to melt the security camera first, and his powerful force to stop the vehicle with his hand. Alicia in return "teletransports" Clark and herself to another floor. She discloses her ability to Clark and he tells her about his strength and heat vision. When they date, Clark finds that the girl is indeed obsessed for him, jeopardizing his privacy and Lana Lang's life, and not accepting to end their short relationship. Meanwhile, Lana finds that Adam keeps a journal about Clark and her, and she decides to evict him. When Adam uses the tenant laws to get more time, Lana asks for help to Lex Luthor.

"Obsession" is one excellent episode of "Smallville" and I do not qualify it as one of the best because again the resolution of the situation of the secret of Clark Kent is flawed. He told his powers to Alicia, arrested her in the end, and nothing happens, i.e., the girl does not expose his abilities to everybody. The promising conclusion, when the mission of Adam is disclosed, is great. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Obsessão"("Obsession")
